Over-stuffed with plot and consequently struggles to invest the audience in any of it, since there's so much to get through and so many future films and spinoffs to set up.

Despite the efforts of Electro, the franchise is running shockingly low on juice.

About the best thing one can say about this fiasco is that Webb has taken only two films to reach the same exhausted, exhausting endpoint that Raimi required three to achieve. It's progress, of a sort.

This is a movie that needs to remove a piece of jewelry.

The trouble with director Marc Webb's disappointing sequel is it wants to have it both ways: to take seriously human connection and loss and also spin the spectacular and pulpy... Spider-Man 2 never locates that sweet spot.

The studios and the producers have to split the difference -- between excellence and adequacy, between darkness and light, between seriousness and fun. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 might have been split too far. It doesn't taste like anything.

Spider-man's new costume looks swell, and Emma Stone is charming. Those are the only two things about The Amazing Spider-man 2 I didn't hate with the fiery anger of a thousand exploding suns.

The Amazing Spider-man 2 can serve to entertain, especially if you love 3D and special effects interspersed with the occasional expertly acted scene.

Plodding and overstuffed where it should be light and nimble, feeling more like a product than a labor of love.

It's fun, but nothing more.

While it shares problems with its predecessor, it also confirms Garfield as the very best big screen iteration of Spidey. What's more, there's even perhaps an argument that he's the strongest of all of Marvel's movie misfits.

The fifth web slinger film since 2002 (the second in this reboot) is overstuffed with plot threads flying everywhere, but there is just enough there to keep the series alive.

The movie may be lacking focus, overstuffed and overlong (2.5 hours), but I didn't find the changing tone distracting.

Is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 worth watching? Yes, especially on the big screen, when we can feel ourselves flying along. Amazing may be overstating the movie's impact, though.

There's no driving style behind it, just a lot of white noise and cues for comics fans to slurp up.

I'm still not convinced that we actually needed this rebooted series, but it's getting better - even if it is at a glacial pace. Recommended for diehard Spider-Man fans only.

Garfield's turn as Peter Parker is unbearably mannered and close to unwatchable at times. It's almost as if he's over-demonstrating the awkward, underdog charm of Parker.

So in settling with Webb's overstuffed superhero saga The Amazing Spider-Man 2 you are automatically conditioned to use your own Spidey senses to embrace another repetitive round of the webhead's angst-ridden heroism.

Has a few too many balls in the air, and a few too many plot threads randomly started or abruptly ended. It feels at times like two separate movies awkwardly scotch-taped together.

The first reboot had heart, which helped it live up to the claim of being an amazing Spider-Man. It's just a shame this isn't an amazing Spider-Man too.
